CU has announced their next class of Buffalo athletes who will be inducted into the University of Colorado Athletic Hall of Fame this coming November.

The 11, two of whom will be honored posthumously, represent nine different sports over a period that spans from the late 1930s to the middle of last decade. Included in the group are three of the most dominant players in the school's basketball history - two men and one woman - the most valuable player of CU's 1990 national championship football team, others with incredible individual accomplishments and two non-athletes that served the school well for a combined 62 years.

The 2015 class will be the second-largest inducted into the Hall since it was conceived in 1998, and the 11 will join 68 individuals (and the 1959 ski team) who have been enshrined to date.

Those set for induction this fall:

Chauncey Billups, Basketball (1995-97)

Jon Burianek, Administration (1968-2006)

Bill Fanning, Baseball (1946-49)

Stephan Hienzsch, Skiing (1975-78)

Frank Prentup, Baseball & Assistant Football Coach (1941-69)

Mike Pritchard, Football (1987-90)

Erin Scholz, Basketball (1993-97)

Mark Scrutton, Cross Country & Track (1979-83)
